Africa Development Corps, also known as Visions in Action, is an international development organization based in Washington,



HIV/AIDS is one of the main challenges to development in Africa, especially Sub-Saharan Africa. ADC has joined hands with dozens of local non-governmental organizations in several African countries to fight the battle against HIV/AIDS. ADC is a PEPFAR partner in Uganda, where we have expanded our traditional volunteer model to include local Ugandan volunteers as peer HIV counselors. The capacity building of local organizations is integral to the program. The models and best practices implemented by ADC can be appropriately adapted in other countries in this region. Our work in HIV/AIDS offers benefits to various stakeholders including those affected by and infected with HIV/AIDS through key elements:


Grassroots Approach


Development occurs best when we are as close as possible to the standard of living of those we are trying to assist. Therefore, a modest, low overhead, grassroots approach is taken in all that we do.



We give of ourselves and make sacrifices for the betterment of others, expecting nothing in return.



Our volunteers work as a community, living together and supporting one another during the experience

Self Reliance


Participants and members of the community work together to attain self-reliance.
